Welcome to 883 Briarwood Drive, an exceptional premium-sized property with a four bedroom executive residence, situated within the Maxwell Heights neighbourhood of Oshawa’s Pinecrest community.
At almost a half acre in size, the 120’ x 165’ lot showcases manicured lawns; extensive stone and perennial landscaping; interlocking walkways and driveway detail; and a spectacular backyard oasis making cottage weekends and vacations a thing of the past.
The home features a double car garage with driveway parking for up to six vehicles, a stone and stucco front facade accented with dark wood trims – and over $200,000 in professional renovations.
An entry door framed with decorative sidelights invites you into a spacious foyer that is open to the upper level, and a main level showcasing generously sized principal rooms and gorgeous hardwood flooring throughout.
The formal living and dining rooms are open to each other, and warmed by a gas fireplace. Their oversized picture windows are dressed with classic sheers for privacy and light-diffusion, and suspended from a ceiling medallion is a chandelier with a clean simple design – giving these beautiful entertaining spaces an aura of elegance.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a bright and spacious breakfast room with wonderful backyard views; a peninsula with storage drawers; and access via a mudroom to the backyard, as well as to the garage.
Off the kitchen – and an addition to the original home – is a light-washed four season sunroom with east-, west-, and south-facing exposures offering outstanding backyard views. Featuring pot lighting, a panelled ceiling, a brick accent wall, and decorated with a fresh light colour palette – this room has a sliding door walk-out to the backyard oasis.
Fully fenced, and surrounded with privacy hedging, this vacation-like personal resort showcases an in-ground concrete pool with a pool-side interlocking patio area – and spanning almost the entire length of the home, the two-tiered composite deck has a hot tub as well as plenty of dining and entertaining space. The backyard has a south-facing exposure, gated access on both sides of the home, gardening beds, and change rooms off the deck – and includes a storage shed, all pool-related equipment, gas line for a barbecue, and a retractable awning.
The kitchen is a beautiful and incredibly functional work space, and showcases cabinetry with a crisp, modern design; new high-end stainless steel appliances; tiled back splashes and quartz counters; as well as a double under mount sink with goose neck faucet, instant hot water, and a garburator.
This level also features a private home office with a bay window, a built-in desk, and a double closet; as well as a spacious powder room – while beautifully textured walls and ceilings add visual interest to the foyer and to the upper level main hallway.
To the upper level is a gorgeous hardwood staircase with carpet runner, and railings with wrought iron pickets – and the same beautiful hardwood flooring as the main level is found throughout the main upper hallway and in the second bedroom. The luxuriously finished main washroom showcases an exquisite flush mount light fixture; porcelain tiles; a freestanding tub bathed in light through a bay window; a linen closet; a custom vanity with pot lighting, dual basins, and granite counters; as well as a frameless glass shower. Off the main hall is a carpeted side hallway that leads to built-in storage closets, as well as two spacious bedrooms above the garage – both carpeted for coziness, and with the first room overlooking the backyard, while the second of these bedrooms enjoys views of the front gardens. There are two double closets off the main hallway for clothing and linen storage, and the hallway leads to a bright, yet relaxing, master bedroom. This lovely personal space features a sitting area with front yard views; his and her double closets; and a 3-pc ensuite washroom with a tiled floor and shower area, a vanity with under mount basin, and California shutters on the window.
Complementing the exceptional main level and outdoor entertainment settings of this home, is the impressively sized lower level family and recreational area. This casual entertaining space features cozy broadloom, pot lighting, and a gas fireplace surrounded by an extensive floor-to-ceiling brick facade — and this level also features a large workshop; a laundry room with laminate flooring, front load washer and dryer, and storage space; as well as a separate room currently used as storage but which can be converted back into its original use as a relaxing sauna room.
Situated on a quiet street in a desirable neighbourhood, this amazing family home is close to schools, shopping, golf courses, and public transit – while access to Hwys 401 and 407 are just short drives away.
